Beyond the Invisible Monster — Tapping Pluto’s Riches

Pluto, especially, is important to recognise in our euphemistic references to the unconscious as the giver of wholeness, a storehouse of abundant riches, a place not of fixation in torment, but a place, if propitiated rightly, that offers fertile plenty. Euphemism is a way of covering anxiety. In antiquity , Pluto (‘ riches’) was said as a euphemistic name to cover the frightening depths of Hades.
